As part of our continued effort to increase access for authors worldwide, the SFS is implementing tiered submission fees for our journals. Authors who reside in middle-income economies will be eligible to pay a reduced submission fee and authors who reside in low-income economies will be eligible for a fee waiver. While our journals have always offered some waivers for economic hardship, we have now formally defined the waiver options to increase transparency.
The 2022 Society for Financial Studies Annual Meeting will take place at SFS Cavalcade North America at UNC at Chapel Hill in May 2022.
